Was she having a face lift?

Will she be singing Shortnin' Bread?

At 37, r1? I hope not!

Did she want well-wishers to send her flowers?

Can’t believe they published the address.

I'm surprised her ass didn't stick out of a window in that shack.

The childhood home of Vivian Vance? The owners of 152 La Vega Drive don't know it, but they're sitting on a gold mine!

R13–why? Those types of short “social” notes were common in every town’s paper…everyone knew most everyone anyway. That very common practice of including an address helps with genealogy research, as a cross-reference to census records and more. It helped my brother in confirming when and where my grandparents had moved within their county.

She was probably having an abortion.

r115, no, her childhood home is in Cherryvale, Kansas. The family later moved to Independence, Kansas, where she graduated from high school. If I remember correctly, by the time her family moved to Alburquerque, she was already married to her first husband.

I doubt she would have wanted an abortion advertised.

R16 Yeah, I've read many of these little social notes related to the comings and goings of my own family. I'm sure I even appeared in some when my parents would take us on vacation to their home towns to visit relatives and all of our names would appear. Where we were from, who we were visiting, how long we were planning to stay. Wild. I think it must have replaces having a town crier ..lol..

Realistically, how "well-known" was Vivian in 1947?

by Anonymousreply 25November 19, 2023 3:45 PM

I hope someone sent her a toaster.

Gender reassignment surgery?

r15, We should all send christmas cards and freak them out. We'd probably make the news.

HA r28!!

It was not an abortion!!! It was a therapeutic scraping of the uterus!

by Anonymousreply 30November 21, 2023 5:05 PM

No need for an abortion, if one has stairs and a temper.

Is this thread a poll?

by Anonymousreply 32November 21, 2023 5:20 PM

In 1947, she was still in the throes of her nervous breakdown.
